Grants in Motion
These grants represent examples of just some of our recent collaborations. What we can accomplish is limited only by your imagination. Tell us your plan, and together, we'll feed some kids. If you're looking to apply for grant funding, visit our application page.
Every group that works with No Child Goes Hungry builds a hunger advocacy program specifically tailored to fit the needs of their community. While every group shares a similar goal, to eliminate childhood hunger, individual grant recipient organizations have the flexibility to build programs that work best for them and their local populations. We are proud that 100 percent of your donation goes toward feeding hungry kids and educating groups about the challenge of hunger in their communities.
